Accidental Crappie

Recommended Posts

I was fishing in a local lake today that i knew had some monster bass in it so i was throwing a Zoom Magnum Fluke. Out of nowhere i felt something i thought was weeds on my line. i pulled up a crappie that was a good 1 1/2 inches shorter than my fluke. all alone in my kayak i found myself cracking up laughing. What a brave little fish.

Similar thing happened to me, caught a 6" bass on a 6" Zoom Trick worm the other day. Had a good laugh, too.

Nice!  I had a small bluegill take a swipe at my crankbait today right at the bank.  He couldn't have been much more than 2 inches bigger than the bait.  Didn't hook him but he was an ambitious little guy.

I catch more crappie fishing for bass than I do fishing for crappie every year. It's often surprising how big of a bait they'll try to eat. I had a 15.5 inch crappie eat a Zoom Horny Toad in a pond several years ago right after catching a 5lb bass off the same spot.

This little guy hit this 1/2oz jig so hard that my line jumped while it was sinking, just like the big bass I was hoping to catch would do.

From the same lake as that little crappie on the jig, also on one of my homemade jigs and 14lb test.

I caught a decent sized crappie last weekend during a tournament.  I was using a shell cracker rigged on a 1/4oz keel weighted swimbait hook.  I was pitching it to visible tree tops and as I swam it through the top and it hit the shell cracker.
